These images and videos, which are similar to those of abstract expressionist painters such as Jackson Pollock, are a series of “action paintings” created by Jeremy Rotsztain. Using custom software and data collected from Internet top 10 lists — top 10 explosions, movie fights, car chases, gun fights as compositional material, Rotsztain puts both still and animated paintings together to create a sort of masculine expressionism. The videos, projected onto large scale canvases using high-definition projectors, are entertaining pieces of abstract […]
What if you could pull your pencil up from your sketch and have the lines freeze in mid air revealing an incredible three dimensional sculpture? Boston-based toy and robotics company WobbleWorks thought about it and then worked to make it a reality. Introducing the 3Doodler, the world’s first and only 3D Printing Pen. This is the first Kickstarter project I’ve seen that literally had my jaw hitting the floor…. Well, my computer desk. How amazing would it be to simply […]
This cool and imaginative mockumentary follows the fictitious career of Dr. Nick Laslowicz, founder and CEO of The Institute For Centrifugal Research (ICR), a laboratory that believes that ” spinning people around at a sufficiently high G-Force will solve every problem.” The film is written and directed by Till Nowak, a German independent digital artist, designer and filmmaker based in Hamburg.

I don’t usually talk about music here on Die For Design but I thought this was way too cool not to share. Yung Jake released a music video that basically takes your web browser on a fun ride. At first when you play E.m-bed.de/d it may seem like something sketchy that your computer shouldn’t be apart of (I did!) but just hit play, listen carefully to the lyrics and enjoy the show! You have to see it for yourself. I’ve […]
I don’t know much about fashion and I try my best to stay away from posting about it because of that, but I thought this was too cute not to post. Kati Turkina directed this video of a model showing you how to turn your guys button-ups into a new dress for you! She will also show you how to turn it into a skirt and halter top. [VIA]

Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton shot this amazing video of pro snowboarder William Hughes in the slopes of Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France. Hughes sported a L.E.D.-enveloped suit, courtesy of designer and electronics whizz John Spatcher, that illuminates the after hours snow-covered hills. “I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness,” says Sutton of his costume choice. “I’ve always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, […]
